This is an exciting book, containing many revolutionary ideas that challenge mediation ideology and practice. The book starts with a quote from James Joyce about Mr. Duffy, who “lived a short distance from his body”. This humorous statement aptly captures how many involved in conflict and conflict resolution live in their heads in a state of disconnection from their body. Mediation and mediators are embedded in modern culture with belief systems that privilege mind and sight over body, spirit and imagination.
